Soon to be brides were given a chance to prepare for their special day at the Joplin Area Bridal Show.
The event featured a variety of vendors showcasing photography, caterers, and design options to help their wedding planning.
They also were taught the importance of preparing for after the big day, including setting up life insurance with their partners.
Organizer Angela Oliver holds this event once a year in Joplin and says she is so happy to see it grow each and every year.
Oliver says, “We want [the brides] to have fun first of all. We want them to enjoy the experience and the time of being engaged up to their wedding. We also want them to come out with knowledge about how to plan their wedding or the vendors they need to help them plan their wedding.”
Oliver adds that brides who attended Sunday’s event were given multiple prizes, as well as special show day deals for their wedding day.
